Rode Ui (Red Onion) in Gouache

.
Did a little gouache, for a change ...

Rode Ui #1 (Red Onion #1)
Winsor & Newton gouache on paper - approx. 5.5"h x 5.5"w


Eventually, most, but not all (rocks would not be tasty), still life subjects in an artist's studio become part of a salad, dinner, or even dessert.

This red onion became part of a salad. :o)

Eet smakelijk! Bon appétit! Enjoy your meal!

I love it! The tones are wonderful.

I bought a red onion yesterday, but I was going to add it to a frittata. I could photograph it first...

Thanks Patty.
Shoot then fry that onion! :) :)

Gorgeous red onion! Just catching up with you after a short break, and wishing Sacha (and her catfood millions) a happy birthday too! What a great find.

Thanks Judith :)
Sacha says 'thank you' too ;)

Hi,

I've been wanting to paint something with red onions or red pears, but they're quite rare here in Portugal.

Really José?! Red onions are quite readily available in Holland. How odd they wouldn't be available in Porto. In fact, I think the ones I buy here come from Spain.

oh! and are you José from WC??
